Downloadable GPS Application Offers AAA’s Travel Information, Navigation, Roadside Assistance in Palm of Hand
Verizon Wireless and AAA have announced AAA Mobile. A tool for travelers, both AAA members and non-members, AAA Mobile enables Verizon Wireless customers to find AAA-rated points of interest and quickly access roadside assistance, right from their GPS-enabled Verizon Wireless phones.
AAA Mobile subscribers can use their Verizon Wireless phones to receive visual and audible directions to any travel destination in the U.S.; locate AAA Approved points of interest (POIs), including Diamond Rated® hotels and restaurants; and search more than 100,000 locations that offer AAA member savings. Subscribers can review detailed AAA descriptions for POIs on their phone, receive a map showing a destination on the mobile phone screen, and bookmark locations as favorites for quick recall in future.
If AAA members experience vehicle difficulties, AAA Mobile streamlines access to AAA’s member roadside assistance service. The press of a single button on their Verizon Wireless phones sends the members’ GPS location to AAA and connects callers with AAA for quick and reliable roadside assistance services.
Verizon Wireless customers can purchase AAA Mobile in the Travel & Guides shopping aisle of the Tools On The Go section in the Get It Now virtual store for $9.99 monthly access. Customers can currently also find AAA Mobile in the Featured Application shopping aisle on select Get It Now-enabled phones. Download charges for Get It Now applications vary and airtime charges apply when browsing, downloading and using certain applications. Customers need a Get It Now-enabled handset and Verizon Wireless digital service to access the Get It Now virtual store.
AAA Mobile is powered by the Networks In Motion (NIM) location-based services platform, and is available for download directly from select GPS-enabled wireless phones. More information, including which phones are compatible with AAA Mobile, is available at www.AAA.com/AAAMobile.
